As the Gouda family's binary star of fresh fare, Falafel Grill sports a Mediterranean menu and affinity for seafood. The familial staff crafts all entrees with 100% olive oil, and vegetarian options abound, such as the lentil soup ($3.95) or the falafel wrap ($5.95), not to be confused with the radio-dominating rhymes of MC Hummu$. Alternatively, split a fish tagine, a robust stew cooked in an earthenware pot ($17.95), or drop by for a lunch of gyros ($6.95).

If you can't find something to top your frozen Xogurt among the fresh fruit chunks and baked goodies at SweetXO's full toppings bar, it's not that big of a deal. Because you'll definitely find something you like in one of the store's more than 200 candy bins.

SweetXO, one part old-fashioned candy store, one part modern yogurt bar with 18 different flavors, lets customers loose in the candy-store portion to find the exact sweet they're looking for to complete their fro-yo creation. At the counter, its sweets-makers also peddle baked goods, such as soft, oven-fresh cookies and brownies that come in six different varieties.

At Char Fasl, chefs camouflage their light, healthy Persian fare behind flavorful veggies instead of heavy oils and sauces. They accommodate all diets with menu items that vacillate between vegetarian and meat-centric. Cooks skewer juicy chunks of meat for boneless-chicken kebabs, a favorite among customers and T. rexes recently off juice cleanses, and grill them with matching skewers of tomatoes. The Four Seasons dish replaces poultry with beans and rice crowned with eggplant and hummus nestled beside a spear of sizzling veggies.

This wide variety of cuisine is served in the restaurant's European atmosphere, which emulates the dishes' international origins, tinted with warm colors that flare to life in front of huge windows. Outside, diners feast and shadows hide from their owners beneath the shade of a tree. Another of the eatery's most enticing aspects unfolds on Fridays and Saturdays, when live music influences the movements of a belly dancer.

Numero Uno Pizza has been cheesing up Chicago–style deep dish and spinning out New York–style pies since 1973. The pizza spot's menu, brimming with eight specialty pizzas ($14.95+ for a medium), travels from the shores of Hawaii with pineapple chunks and canadian bacon to the sands of Santa Fe with smoky barbecue sauce and chicken breast. Pie aficionados orchestrate their own masterpieces from a choice of crusts ($4.95 for a 7” individual) lavished with a selection of 20+ toppings such as feta cheese, pepperoncini peppers, and artichoke hearts ($0.75–$1.95 each). Diners can close the hatch of a genoa-salami-and-cheese submarine ($8.95 for a footlong) and venture into the depths of the ocean, or climb up mountains of triple-chocolate Blackout cake ($4.95) in search of glory and napkins.

A red carpet leads the way past a cluster of spotlights, and two large lacquered doors grant access to a low-lit room. Conversation buzzes, layered over the underlying thumping of music that emanates throughout the space. It's the quintessential modern nightclub, but Sunset Room is alive with old-school Hollywood glamour; it's decorated with crystal chandeliers and dark wood, aesthetic touches that are the very antithesis of stale chain restaurants or picnic tables set up in a cave. In the dining room, white tablecloths rest beneath the light of flickering candles, and small plates encourage sharing bites of flatbread and steak sliders. Reserved seating can make guests feel extra special, and live bands and DJs start dance parties on the dance floor. A team of mixologists also arrives on the scene to shake and stir a variety of craft cocktails and drinks at the towering bar.

The elegant mixture of cuisine, libations, and decor that constitutes Sunset Room is the brainchild of Chris Breed and James Ashford. Since 1990, Chris has been improving nightlife in Hollywood, first with the Roxbury Supper Club and now with Sunset. Chris teams up with James, who has a background as an LAPD officer and a real-estate man.
